“One is Silver and the other Gold”

"Make new friends, but keep the old...One is Silver and the other Gold!"

The past two days I've gotten to spend time with some of the "Gold" in my life and celebrate their birthdays.

Friday Night I went to Olive Garden with Frank and Sabrina for Sabrini's Birthday! I can't believe she's married and 6 months pregnant. Her little baby belly is sooo cute! And it was so nice to spend time with her and Frank!

Last night Andrea and I went to P.F. Changs with Gabe for his birthday! Again he's married and has a baby! I'm noticing a pattern here…LOL! I wish that Holly and Reagan could have come too. I guess I'm really grateful and lucky that my old friends seem to marry awesome people who fit right in.

I have so many good memories with both Gabriel and Sabrina! Fun and fights, laughing and crying, serious talks and silly talks- isn't that what friendship is all about!? And even though I don't get to see them every day, there are little things throughout my daily routines that bring to remembrance how much I love them—not just them, but all of the "Gold" in my life!

"The making of friends, who are real friends, is the best token we have of a man's success in life."
- Edward Everett Hale

I think I am truly a rich man to already have so much "Gold" I believe the saying….

"Friends are God's way of taking care of us."

I believe a "golden" friendship is one that has become refined and polished through the experience of life. Friends that are "gold" shine always, untarnished by the years of neglect, but still brilliant when they are renewed.

Dad and I were lucky to have spent time with friends of gold this weekend too. Gold never changes.
